Several of the bright, yellow West Marine racing marks have finally succumbed to age and you’ll now see four new marks on the water.
Fleet Captain Greg Woodcock and Lake Captain Bruce Andress arranged for replacement of the marks, tossing out four old yellers that were coming apart at the seams, filling with water, and sinking.
The new marks cost over $400 each, another substantial investment by the club in our racing program. The expenditure follows significant repairs to the RC boat and the runabout, mostly caused by rough treatment of these expensive club assets.
So, enjoy your new racing marks. And if you find yourself on the runabout placing marks this spring, please treat them with the care they need to live a long life. You know, don’t walk on them.
